We often get lost in planning our future and that’s okay but once in a while stop for a second and drop everything that you are doing and be present. If you’re with your family right now, drop your phone and take it all in, cherish that moment for a second. Acknowledge what you have in front of you. We are all doing things right now because of what’s ahead and we barely enjoy what we already have. Be in the moment because time flies so fast, you may not have what you have right now in the future.
Welcome to another highlighted words segment where I share with you some phrases and words from books that I read and I felt it was relevant and relatable.
Let these highlighted words from the book speak for the book itself.
The Princess Saves Herself In This One by Amanda Lovelace (Poetry)
“Silence has always been my loudest scream.”

Finding love is such a wonderful thing to have, especially the idea of falling in love with someone you have known for quite a while. Hopeless romantics may say it’s a dream to have it with a friend, the trust and bond is immediately there, and after all the films that have that love story shows how perfect it truly is— it’s not. Falling in love with your best friend can cause a lot of negative emotions and consequences.
Films that has these best friend to lovers story lines messed up your expectations and reality because of how it shows these perfect stories, and you being this hopeless romantic crave for the same story for yourself. Generally, love is not like the movies (just saying).
You and your best friend became friends all these years for a reason, and you suddenly see them with heart eyes, it makes you look desperate of wanting someone in your life and you see your best friend always being there, and your brain started thinking that maybe you two were made for each other. You are made for each other in a different non-romantic way.
It also ruins your long time bond with each other, leaving you feeling awkward around them. And when you finally decide to confess your feelings and your friend doesn’t feel the same way, you’ll be manipulative and start acting out like you’re the one who got wronged. And, you’ll leave your best friend feeling devastated, or worst they’ll start believing that they feel the same way and that is just pathetic.
Sorry, but to be honest it is truly pathetic to fall in love with someone you have known for most of your life, who you trust the most, and basically have been there for you through it all. I don’t believe in you just magically fall for your friend, it is sad and unfair that it took you that long to realize that you have feelings for your best friend, you took advantage of getting to know them as a friend and use it as a way to develop the relationship into a romantic one.
Though, I’ll respect it. I mean if it’s true love then who am I to stop it?
